Cutting carbs is popular, effective and appropriate for some medical conditions like PCOS. The main issue with the diet is the common low fiber intake associated with switching from eating a lot of grains, fruit and starches to more protein and fat.

The recommended amount of fiber each day is 14 grams for every 1,000 calories you eat. So for a 1,500 kcal diet, that’s 21g per day.
